Norton V4SV: the most luxurious British sportbike ever createdFri, 12 Nov 2021
The Solihull company announced nothing less than the beginning of a new era of British motorcycle construction. And the symbol of the beginning of this era will be the Norton V4SV sportbike, presented at once in two versions: Manx and Carbon. Scheduled for release next year, the V4SV is powered by a 1,200cc V-4-cylinder engine, developed in-house. Of course, the British claim that it produces a maximum power of 185hp and a peak torque of 125 Nm. The chassis is a true work of art. Welded aluminum tube frame (British school!), fully adjustable Öhlins top suspensions: NIX30 inverted fork and TTXGP rear shock. The brakes are up to the mark: two radial Brembo monobloc calipers in front, paired with 330mm (!) discs, and a Brembo caliper and 245mm disc in the back. The fuel tank for maximum mass centralization is located under the seat. Surely the Norton V4SV is "stuffed" with electronics to the maximum: two-way quickshifter, keyless ignition, electronic steering lock, full LED optics, instrument panel - 6-inch full-color display with automatic brightness control and the ability to display pictures on it from the rear view camera.
